Canada's men's U-17 team won 3:2 over Morocco on the second match day of the six-team 2012 AGS Cup in Spain. Down to 10 men, Canada scored the winning goal midway through the second half to improve its record to one win and one draw. Canada's 3:2 win on 30 September was preceded by a 2:2 draw with Azerbaijan on 29 September.
"We played some very good football in the first half," said Canadian U-17 coach Sean Fleming. "In the second half, we showed great character to overcome adversity and score with only 10 men."
Against Morocco, Canada's goal scorers were Jordan Hamilton, Hanson Boakai and Elias Roubos. Goalkeeper Daniel Milton was selected Canada's player of the match.
Canada will train on Monday before returning to action on Tuesday 2 October. For its next three matches, Canada faces Mexico on Tuesday 2 October, USA on Thursday 4 October, and UAE on Saturday 6 October.
This marks Fleming's second 2012 project with the 1996-born players. The team is in its early preparations for the 12-team 2013 CONCACAF Men's Under-17 Championship, which runs 6-19 April in Ciudad Panama. Only four teams from CONCACAF will qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup UAE 2013, which runs 17 October to 8 November.
